Surveys conducted earlier in the year and the Scottish Engineering’s Quarterly Review generally report more positive trends. All surveys suggest, to varying degrees a slowing down in orders and activity, although export trends remain positive. The common themes include rising prices, cost pressures and some easing in the demand for labour, and these have been strengthening over the first five months of 2008.
